Safe and sustainable access to innovation-critical raw materials

Last updated: 8 December 2023

The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research (Mistra) has released a call for proposals for a research programme for "safe and sustainable access to innovation-critical raw materials". The future research programme will use a strategic environmental perspective to identify risks and opportunities regarding access to metals and minerals deemed critical for a sustainable transition of society. The programme is expected to be cross-disciplinary and focus on the social, economic and environmental challenges across the value chain in society’s future provision of innovation-critical raw materials. Mistra will offer a maximum budget of SEK 20 million over a four-year period. This call for proposals is closely related to that of the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research announced the same year for a Swedish center for strategic metals and minerals.
